“I can never be sad on the Rue des Mar­tyrs,” says Elaine Sci­olino on the sub­ject of her book, The Only Street in Paris, where she brings her favourite neigh­bour­hood to life through sto­ries of its his­tory-filled build­ings, quirky in­hab­i­tants and time-hon­oured shops. Take the tour with her and you’ll soon un­der­stand her per­pet­u­ally happy state and in­fat­u­a­tion with this small, quintessen­tially Parisian street through her en­chant­ing ode to a fad­ing, fas­ci­nat­ing world.
